My Top Picks for S/S10 under £40

When online shopping, my first port of call is to check whether there are any discount codes available for where I plan to buy from. Before now I’ve saved money at ASOS, and have printed off vouchers for 2 for 1 restaurant deals.

When they got in touch with me and asked me to pick 5-10 pieces that I think will be hot for 2010 I jumped at the chance. The catch to this was, that everything must be under £40.

Having had enough for winter, I set about compiling my picks for spring and summer. You’ll notice a bit of a theme going on in the form of girlish pieces and nude colours and that’s because I am head over heels in love with all things etheral right now.

So, here are my 10 and where you can buy them.

  10. What courses are you taking at college? I had an exam today, which I didnt plan out properley and am now sure I’ve failed but I’m gonna take my own advice and just relax and look forward to my other exams to top my grde up. xxx

  11. ohh those are so pretty!
    i, too, am obsessed with retailmenot (the u.s. equivalent it sounds like) for getting deals and free shipping.

  12. I really love that House of Fraser nautical dress! I get paid tomorrow so I might have to pop in and have a little look…!! And maybe try it on…!! xx

  13. Some very lovely picks! I adore the daisy top but I think if I was to get it, then it twould be a little cheesy!

  14. Love your choices. Really love the first dress.

  15. I love the daisy shirt !!!

  16. I always check out vouchercodes… spesh for 2 or 1 food deals.

    I love your chosen pieces, every single one of them. The daisy crop top is gorgeous!!! but I can’t really show off my belly now at my age!! might have to look at one for my daughter – she’s called Daisy. When she was a baby all her clothes had daisy’s on… I guess it was just the ‘baby’ fashion for some reason. x
